Handmade in The Netherlands.
high quality leather(!)
this piece is from a discarded leather skirt.
Saved by us and given a new purpose as a handmade bag.
embroidered and with leather straps.
Dutch design with a twist
This bag is made from saved materials and leftovers
from other productions.
The leather as used is all naturally tanned. The 'Ceci n'est pas une ...' theme for this collection
means this is not CHANEL. The 'Ceci n'est pas..'phrase refers to the
famous painting 'Ceci n'est pas une pipe'
("this is not a pipe")from René Margritte..
It is a playful commentary on the in many ways
unhealthy fashion industry. The mostly overpriced items are promoted
by huge marketing campaigns
and often bought with illegally obtained
or ethically-suspect money.
It's all about the brand and not about
the value of the actual product.
That's why our bag is a purely functional design.
The bag is strong and durable.
And they are all one-of-a-kind.
No two bags are the same.
The text line is embroidered on the leather.
All bags are Dutch Design and handmade
in our studio in het heart of Amsterdam.
Exclusive design by 'Ceci n'est pas une ...'
a movement that takes a stand against
the emptiness of today's fashion industry.
